The tomb was discovered in the pine forest which is two km away from the ruins of the Monastery of Eleousa, west of the Rizokarpasso village. Inside the tomb, among other things, were discovered a rather deformed human skeleton, three amphora, three decorated bowls, three earth ware water jugs and a perfume bottle.
